 Ella Thomas
Animal Protection Society of Durham

Ella is a youth volunteer with a tremendous capacity for compassion toward animals! Over the summer, she volunteered 5-6 days per week at the Animal Protection Society of Durham. Her 3-6 hours per day were spent cleaning cat rooms and socializing the cats. The cats are very relaxed in her presence. Despite her youth, she possesses great knowledge of cat care. With support from her family, Ella was able to foster kittens during a busy kitten season. When Ella attended a big adoption event with her foster kittens, one of her kittens was the first to be adopted. Ella's ability to cover all aspects of cat care and adoption has made her extremely valuable to the APS.

Thank you, Ella, for devoting your time to caring so thoroughly for Durham's needy animals!
